Diagnosing Cerebral Aneurysms
Treating Cerebral Aneurysm
The traditional surgical method to treat cerebral aneurysms is to close them off with a clip to restore blood flow through the artery. However, Emory neurosurgeons have played an important role nationally in refining a less invasive treatment for cerebral aneurysms: endovascular coiling, which involves placing small, platinum coils in the aneurysm to cut off blood flow. Approximately 300 aneurysms each year are treated with endovascular coiling at Emory University Hospital, which places Emory first nationally in offering this innovative procedure with demonstrated efficacy, particularly for patients with ruptured aneurysms.
Treatment for Brain Aneurysms is a specialty of Emory Neurosurgery, and involves a multidisciplinary physician team, state-of-the-art technology and the highest quality patient care.
